The Agrarian Kitchen cooking school is coming up to its 10th birthday! During that time we have welcomed just over 250 guests to our very popular 2-day “whole hog” class. However, we have decided to take a break from holding this class and our “whole hog” class on Mon 20th & Tue 21st August will be the last we hold for a while. We have 5 places available. $880 pp. Book via our website. ..
Spanning two days with butcher, Marcus Vermey @chopper181vermeysqmeats and The Agrarian Kitchen’s Rodney Dunn, we begin with a whole carcass and learn the ins and outs of cutting and utilising a pig, from nose to tail. This class is all about getting to know quality meat and developing a respect for where our meat comes from and the sacrifice that is made on the animal’s behalf in order for us to eat. We will be using our own Berkshire pig raised here on our farm making it even more special.
From the initial break down of the pig with Marcus each cut will be discussed in terms of usage to help you understand firstly where it comes from on the animal - then what you can cook with it. We will utilise all the cuts over the two days to cook around sixteen individual dishes and be left with nothing but the oink. There will also be an opportunity to visit our own pigs and discuss our own raising practices for those wishing to take the leap into pig-rearing.

New lambs...thirteen and counting!

We're very lucky to have the wonderful Belinda Jeffery @belindajefferyfood returning here to our @agrariankitchen cooking school on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 September. The day with Belinda will start with a forage through our garden to pick the fruit, veggies and herbs that you will need for the tarts, breads, and cakes that you bake together. At the end of the day, you will sit by the fire in the cosy dining room (and in Belinda's own words "its cookbook-lined walls are bliss!) enjoying a glass of wine, and eating the fruits of your labours. Book now via our website at Classes are from 9am to 4.30pm and cost $440 pp.
P.S. If you're wondering what this rather lovely cake is, it's a chestnut cake with a delicate vanilla and Cognac filling...and it's so delicious! ☺
